Welcome to NatureBits

Dedicated to the understanding and enjoyment of natural sounds.


Welcome! I developed NatureBits to share the nature recordings I have made over the past several years. At this time I have posted sounds made by more than 170 species of birds plus a few recordings of mammals, amphibians and insects. Most of the recordings were made in North America, but some are from Africa and Asia. The sounds in a few recordings may not be available commercially or may be difficult to find (e.g. Beautiful Nuthatch and the unusual mating display call of Hartlaub's Bustard).

I will be adding new sounds as I get them, and I also will be adding new information on how birds or animals communicate. Drop me a line if you have thoughts or experiences to share -- or if you have found any inaccuracies in NatureBits.

I hope you find NatureBits interesting and enjoyable.
